Welcome to Travel Junkette!

This blog, at its heart, is an adventure travel blog (uhh, didya see the name?). For travel junkies, junkettes, and wannabes.

BUT, it is also my blog. It will have a lot of me in it. (And who am I? Well, if, shockingly, you’re someone other than my mom, then check out the “About” section to figure that out.)

Here, I am planning on sharing travel tips, stories, photos, and any other inspirational thing-ys I come across during a week.

I’ll write about past travels and future ones (Japan/Philippines in January 2012, holla!). I also want to do a lot of reflection and research to hopefully help more people get out there adventuring.

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu. Zip-off pants are in, right?

Most of what I write about will have to do with adventure travel, and an adventure lifestyle. Some of it will be as random as I am. (And, I’m warning you ahead of time, I’m weird. But, in a good way. Not like in a Peewee Herman way.)

I have spent months trying to narrow down this blog’s “niche” and the things I can write about.. and I’m over it. It’s too hard. I’m not perfect, and this blog won’t be either. I just want it to be fun.

I’m just figuring out this whole blogging thing, and I’m going to try to post a few times a week. I hope you guys will grow with me. Please share with your friends, family, coworkers, and… even that guy that you’re hooking up with but don’t really like. Thanks for reading Travel Junkette!

PS. Ooh, and PLEASE like my Facebook page and subscribe to my RSS feed! (Mom and Dad, for the love of sunshine; don’t ask me what that means. Wait until I am home and can arm myself with a powerpoint presentation and a SLEW of vodka cranberries. In the meantime, I made a “subscribe by email” button just for you!)

  1. Zip pants are definitely in.

    The site looks awesome!

  2. Oh, oh…intrepid nomad! Well, always save some money Susan. If not, I’ll spot you some and than I’ll ask for a government bailout. You should set-up a PayPal donate button.

  3. Are there any other hiking pant options besides zip pants or jeans? I remain confused.

  4. Susan! This blog looks so great! I am very impressed. It is, in fact, much superior to jenthoughts.gov (RIP) at least in design.

    Important question: Do you accept open letters to celebrities? Now that jenthoughts has died, I not longer have a forum for my rantings.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Janene! Jenthoughts will always hold a special place in all of our hearts. Are these open letters to travel-related celebrities? If so, let’s talk. I always love your rants.

  5. Good luck with the travel blog mate. One of the best things I’ve ever done is start mine. I’ve made friends right across the world and never been happier.

    • Thanks a lot, Chris. I’m glad to hear you’ve had such good experiences through your blog. I just checked it out, and it is awesome, though I am baffled (and always will be) by Australians’ attachment to Vegemite!

  6. WOW! What a lovely pictures. A beautiful lady with a beautiful nature background. I just like this picture. This blog is also awesome.

    • So glad you stopped by, Angela… and thanks for the nice compliments! I just posted some photos of Mongolia. Please enjoy!

  7. Welcome to the travel blogging world! You’ve definitely got the personality to be a success so all the best with everything – although I’m not sure whether I can approve of the zip-off pants! :)

    Where are you headed to in the Philippines? It’s a beautiful country and hopefully you get out to some of the islands!

    • Haha. I don’t think anybody “approves” of the zip-off pants. They just magically find their way into your backpack, and suddenly you’re wearing them while hiking the Inca Trail!

      Thanks for your comments, Kieron. They mean a lot coming from an established blogger like yourself! (I love your guys’ blog.) I am going to Malapascua Island in January. I am really looking forward to diving with the thresher sharks. Thanks again and come back soon!
